buy-back-guarantee-1

BOULDER, Colo. (June 5, 2014)—The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) has just released its “We’ll Buy Back Your Home” Guarantee.

If the client’s participating Certified Professional Inspector® misses anything in the inspection, InterNACHI will buy back the home.  It’s that simple.

There’s no deductible and no “weasel” clauses.

Here are the no-frills terms of this groundbreaking Buy-Back Guarantee:

  • Honored for 90 days after closing.
  • Valid for home inspections performed for home buyers by participating InterNACHI members.
  • We’ll pay whatever price the client paid for the home.
  • The guarantee excludes homes with material defects not present at the time of the inspection, or not required to be inspected per InterNACHI’s Residential Standards of Practice.

Home buyers can buy a home worry-free when they have it inspected by a participating InterNACHI member. If they’re not happy within the first 90 days after buying it, InterNACHI will buy back the home at full price.
Real estate agents in North America can be assured that their clients can now buy with confidence.

Additionally, InterNACHI protects the privacy of its members’ clients.  It doesn’t collect identifiable consumer data, so it can’t sell it or release it.  No names, addresses, phone numbers or email addresses are sold or released to any third party.

InterNACHI members can visit this link to sign up:  http://www.nachi.org/buy.htm

Ladies and gentlemen, this is one of the reasons you should have a Home Inspection by Wayne Collier Home Inspections. A potential life saving issue was found in this home. A gas water heater installed right next to an ignition source. You really hate to sound alarm bells and question a contractor if that is who installed this. It would seem that possibly the original homeowner did this as it’s a foreclosure. After further research and consultation we have determined this to be a serious hazard that may result in death if not replaced with an electric water heater. The air handler is not only electric but produces a spark at time of operation. Gas and an ignition source do not mix and one final note, the air return is at the bottom of the handler in the photo making it matters worse.
